Listen to this article

Four stocks have been put under the ban for trade on Wednesday, February 16, 2022 under the futures and options (F&O) segment by the National Stock Exchange (NSE). These securities have been put on ban under the F&O segment as it has crossed 95% of the market-wide position limit (MWPL), as per the NSE.

PSU stocks Bharat Heavy Electricals Limited (BHEL), Steel Authority of India (SAIL), and Indiabulls Housing Finance continue to be under the F&O ban. Whereas, Tata Power and Punjab National Bank (PNB), that were part of the stock ban list in the previous sessions, are out of the list by the stock exchange for today. 

On the other hand, Escorts has been added under the F&O ban by NSE on Wednesday. The exchange updates the list of securities in ban for trade everyday.

The derivative contracts in the mentioned securities have crossed 95% of the market-wide position limit and are therefore have been currently put in the ban period by the stock exchange, said NSE.

“It is hereby informed that all clients/members shall trade in the derivative contracts of said securities only to decrease their positions through offsetting positions," the stock exchange said. "Any increase in open positions shall attract appropriate penal and disciplinary action," NSE added.

No fresh positions are allowed for any of the F&O contracts in that particular stock when it is under the F&O ban period. The MWPL (market-wide position limit) is set by the stock exchanges which is the maximum number of contracts that can be open at any time (Open Interest), therefore, the F&O contracts of that stock enter a ban period if the open interest crosses 95% of the MWPL.
